Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Occasionally, surgery can be performed the same day as the consultation. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan will require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment on another day.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
- Your surgical referral slip and any x-rays if applicable.
- A list of medications you are presently taking.
- Any history of taking medications for Osteoporosis.
- If you have medical or dental insurance, bring the necessary completed forms and copies of your insurance information. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the consultation visit.
A consultation and physical examination are beneficial for all patients. If you are undergoing IV anesthesia for surgery, please have nothing to eat or drink (8) eight hours prior to your surgery. You will also need an adult to accompany you and drive you home to stay with you after surgery while you recover.
Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern during your consultation (i.e., diabetes, osteoporosis, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves, artificial joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are currently taking any medications (i.e., heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.).
If your dentist or physician has taken x-rays, you may request that they forward them to our office. If there is not enough time, please pick them up and bring them to our office with you to help expedite your exam. If additional films are necessary, they can be taken at our facility.
